“I discovered a great community at CFBB. The coaches are young, excited about CrossFit and very knowledgeable. The programming is complete, even though more focused on metcons, until we get the new gym. Scaled version of each exercises allow for all to find their limit, and most time go past it.

After 15 years of physical inactivity, it took me a while to get to par with the kids at the box, but I am now able to keep up with them and sometime finish in front, and this is thanks to our awesome coaches. I am in better shape than ever before and this is helping me tackle all aspects of life, both physically and mentally. Once more, thanks to our coaches and to the community, I will never give up.”

“Instructors are careful to demonstrate proper technique, and can show you modifications if you need them.”

“I have been doing CrossFit for 4 years. During that time I’ve seen a great increase in my stamina and strength. This has encouraged me to take part in activities like the Zimmerman Challenge and Lynx Rush. I can’t imagine not doing CrossFit!

The instructors are great. Each day brings a different WOD, which are both fun and challenging. Instructors are careful to demonstrate proper technique, and can show you modifications if you need them for reasons of strength and agility.”

“Crossfit Black Bear was my first introduction to CrossFit. I was in the middle of a bodybuilding routine, when my buddy and I decided to drop in on a class and give it a try. I’ve been hooked ever since. Josh and the Black Bear staff care about their athletes and give them the attention they need. They truly want to see you succeed, in the gym and in your life.

Crossfit Black Bear is a great place to become part of a community and achieve your goals. The coaches here will help support you in the gym and help you do things you never thought you could. I am so thankful that I wandered into that class 4 years ago. It may sound cliché, but it changed my life for the better. Thank you CFBB.”

“I would recommend CrossFit Black Bear to anyone, at any fitness level, and I have. The coaching is excellent and will take any athlete to a higher fitness level.”

“When I first decided to try Crossfit, I was pretty intimidated. I didn’t know any of the exercises, and I had no idea what to expect. I was welcomed into the class and was relieved to find that each movement was explained, broken into smaller parts, and then demonstrated. CrossFit Black Bear always showed ways to make the exercise work for any skill level, from mine (beginner), to the most advanced athlete in the group. I now can enter the class with confidence, knowing that my questions will be taken seriously and carefully addressed.

Despite my beginner level and lower level of fitness, CFBB has helped me reach personal fitness goals. For example, after about 5 months in his class, I decided to compete in a competition designed for novice and intermediate crossfit athletes. CFBB took the time to work with me to ensure that I understood the WODs that I would have to complete, providing instruction and feedback on the exercises.

I have seen a lot of improvement in my fitness level since I began Crossfit Black Bear. When I first began 18 months ago, I could not execute even one crossfit style sit up. Coach modified the exercise by putting a weight on my feet. I am pretty proud to say that I recently completed a WOD that entailed 50 sit ups and 25 V-ups. I also have found that the WODs have improved my running, and I’ve been able to increase my mileage because of the gain in my overall strength.

Coach Josh is always watching our form and coaching us on how to improve. In 18 months, I have never had an injury. I’ve competed twice, and both times I was complemented by other coaches on my form. This is entirely due to the instruction I’ve received at Crossfit Black Bear. I would recommend Crossfit Black Bear to anyone, at any fitness level, and I have. The coaching is excellent and will take any athlete to a higher fitness level.”

“If someone had told me 3 years ago that I would be going regularly to a CrossFit box to exercise, I would have said “What you smokin?” But here I am, 3 years later, totally addicted to it. Two to three classes a week has me in the best shape I’ve been in for 20 years. And being in shape means I can bike, hike, ski, snowshoe and backpack with folks who are almost always a lot younger than me, and sometimes even show the young’uns a thing or two.

I like to say CrossFit works for me because of the 3 S’s. It’s Scheduled – I just have to show up for classes. It’s Structured – I just have to do what the great coaches tell me to do. And it’s Social – I enjoy the camaraderie of the CrossFit Black Bear community. CrossFit has made a huge difference in my life, and it can in yours too.”
